Civil engineering ensures that we can live fine lives despite the harsh natural environment that surrounds us. Heavy machinery is currently being used at construction sites to continue to expand humanity's frontiers. They're also important tools to quickly recover from natural disasters.

This exhibit will allow visitors to experience the three processes of construction that include land preparation, construction, and demolition. They'll be able to see actual examples of the latest construction equipment such as bulldozers, and parts from a jumbo-sized crane used for demolition featuring a driver's seat, and a hydraulic shovel. Visitors will be able to feel the power of this heavy machinery and experience the world of construction. The exhibit will also highlight examples of technologies being developed based or new materials such as carbon fiber.

As well as an all-star lineup of heavy machinery, this exhibit will also introduce you to the very latest in civil engineering technologies. It's designed to be fun for anyone, from small children through to adults.
